Barcelona: Another bid made – report

Barcelona have already spent big bucks this summer and it looks as if they going to continue spending and then deal with the consequences later.

They have already got rid of Fabregas and Sanchez for a combined 76 million Euros. But with Suarez, Bravo and Mathieu coming in, and another massive bid reported this week, they may need to sell again to avoid sanctions.

Barcelona do, of course, have a massive turnover so perhaps they can make one more big purchase without having to sell. Recent reports in Spain suggest that the club has made a last bid for the brilliant marquinhos of PSG.

Marca says:

PSG rebuff €43m Barça bid for Marquinhos

It is clear that Barcelona see the Brazilian as a priority signing. But they are trying to buy from one of the richest clubs in the world and they may find that this pursuit ends in frustration.

We think a player like Mats Hummels would be a solid and brilliant investment for Barcelona. He may also be easier and cheaper to acquire. Although Dortmund don’t want to sell, every player has a price. The price for Hummels would be much lower than the figures being mooted for Marquinhos.

But let’s have another look at the brilliant youngster in action. Barcelona fans: is this deal taking up too much time and should you now concentrate on other defensive targets?

    Why stressing and sweating over this guy when there are better defensive options out there and even cheaper.

    i think barca should forget about marquinhos and go for mats hummels,vamealin or cuadrodo for right wing.i think barca should be focus here here and here instead of chasing many rats at thesame time. buying of hummels and vamealin is a good ideal….

    Pls Zubi & Faus forget about this. Kid the type of player that Barca need so far is espiriance and solid defender like fifa world 2014 star Mart Hummel is our problem in defensive line.

    Zubi and Lucho knws best but I tink its high time we Barcelona’s lover forget chasing the moving wind like Marquinhus. Jst sign Hummels and pls consider to sign Marco Reus. I see him haing d eager to play for d camp nou side frustrated reaction oa d signing of Suarez.

    Please… Andoni zubi and luise enrique. In my own opinion i prefered mat hummel and dani agger. Intead of spending the big money on maquinhos alone. Remember they were taller in defence and good header and we need taller cd in our back four, please favour the fans, thanks.

    Please zubi, never doudt on marts Hummels because hi has the quality, forget about PSG, they want to buy but they don’t want to sell, don’t weast your time there. If not Hummels let it be Agger.

    For this one the point is clear,zubi and puyol we know you know better than us but u need to consider this one,simply forget this marqunhos and go for hummels,coudrado,reus and vemanlen,This four players far better than that of marquinhos .Even if not any of this four it must be hummels.

  22. odewabi tobi

    Aug 1, 2014 at 11:18 am

    Mats hummels is the best defender than marqhinues as the latest player is lack of experience since he is only 20 yr old

  26. Rillytotti

    Aug 1, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    Barca officials should think and forget marquinhos now,hummels is far better we are less good in the air while hummel dominates, breathtaking tackles, a stopper and has lesser price than PSG’s macquinhos let hummels join he scores,stops at a time.

  27. hasheemafrica

    Aug 1, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    Please!! Reus and Hummels are the missing players at barca… barca for life…catalan where the football is.

  29. Giorgio

    Aug 1, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    Please Andoni we the fans make barca why shouldn’t you Hummel’s,Cuardrado and possibly Reus.If Zubi u have forgotten Hummels said he’s crazy to play for Barcelona so what is the problem even he’s experience and now rated as one of the best defenders across the globe.
